Friday, July 03, 2015

Members of 9 regional Advisory Boards for Child participation - ABCs (from the districts of Ungheni, Falesti, Calarasi, Cahul, Telenesti, Singerei, Causeni, Orhei, and Soroca) and the members of the National Advisory Board for Child participation – NABC got reunited this year within the traditional summer school, organized by the Association “Partnerships for Every Child” – P4EC.

With the occasion, teens could enjoy a good time together, share experiences and results achieved over the year and empower their abilities of monitoring and assessment of the local policies and programs based on child’s right protection.

The event reunited 200 youngsters – all members of these ABCs, which took participation in a series of trainings and socio – cultural activities, conducted by the local coordinators. According to P4EC’s Consultant in Child’s Participation, Natalia Semeniuc, since these ABCs’ and NABC’s creation, the summer school is being organized every year. „The Summer school is a good occasion for the members of ABCs to know better each other. We cannot help noticing how, year by year, these children become more mature. We are happy to assist at their formation as personalities, at the actions they take to help other children in our country and finally, at the welfare of many children and families in Moldova.”

Besides jokes and enjoying each other’s company, the teens learned more about the inclusive education, child’s welfare, the ways of promoting, monitor and report their own activities and the importance of collaboration with media. Some of the teens’ impressions are exposed below.

I’m going home with very good impressions, with a new experience and with a lot of things which I didn’t know, but I learned here about them. I’m now more informed and I’m happy for these 4 days in which I enjoyed life, sun and beautiful time.”
